Been taking the back seat this last few weeks, about 6 weeks of silence on the Aquaponics front. All is well just decide to let plants grow and halt all experimenting for the time being. I want to see the plants grow, and its slow.. with the heat and all.
Those growbed outside are flourishing with growth more than I could handle.
Corriander and Yam over spilling the tub, its very hot these last few weeks and water in the fish tank dried up very fast.
Most of the fish that was here I had transferred to the main tank and just left a few to take care of the plants needs.
On the main tank growbed growth over spilling too, covering the fish tank access. Its okay, I am not harvesting those fishes yet till after Christmas.
That shade that I did helps a bit on these dry spell and I would expect the worst to come this next 2 months. Evaporation on the main tank is significantly less, maybe due to the overgrowth.
Mint and Asparagus fighting for space, I just let them be. The Asparagus is not big and so far its survived.
When ever you don't have time or any specific plant to grow, try Mint first.. these will ensure you have plant to take care of the biological process and then you get the more serious plant to try.
Another growbed of Yam, I like this plants since its so fast in multiplying and provide plentiful source of vegetable for the kitchen.
The system running without problem and I just feed the fish to keep them happy. The plants are doing great on their own.
Okay till next time.
